Rebirth of the consciousness of your divine spark
A personal ritual to create vibrational harmony with food
The School of Meditation path is based on managing personal energy, in connection with the forces of the spiritual ecosystem, to make every action in the day more intense and aware.
An example of this is the Damanhurian ritual of food purification. Taking nourishment is a time to be aware of oneself and the environment, as well as enjoy the company of others. To aid in this awareness, a food purification ritual is performed at the beginning of each meal. It involves breathing deeply and reciting a short affirmation of the purity of the food. This creates a sense of harmony between the food and those who will consume it. By doing this, the meal becomes an occasion for both physical and subtle energetic nourishment.
Of course, purifying food does not necessarily make it more digestible, tastier or healthier, but bringing awareness to what we eat is always fundamental. It is part of having a sense of personal responsibility, which is one of the core values of Damanhur Meditation.
